Tell the Legislature: End Government Collection of Union Dues!

Tell the Legislature: End Government Collection of Union Dues!

Public-sector unions are afforded the benefit of government entities collecting their dues and remitting them to the union on a regular basis. Other entities that engage in the political process aren’t afforded this opportunity, rightfully so.

Prohibiting government-union collusion isn’t intended to stifle the speech or ability of public sector unions to advocate for their members, as union members would still be able to contribute to associations of their choosing. The only difference is, the burden would simply fall on the unions, rather than taxpayers, and this potential conflict of interest would be removed.

This session, the legislature needs to act on ending the collusion between government and public employee unions.

Send a message to the Legislature! Get the government out of the business of collecting union dues!
